Chef Charlie Kleinman over at Wexler’s (568 Sacramento Street) is mixing things up a bit and offering, for the first time, a prix fixe tasting menu for $55. As Tablehopper reports, the theme of the first menu is “Paris, Texas,” which features “classic French bistro dishes through a barbecue lens.”

The dishes featured currently include: celery root soup with crispy ham hock, cornbread croutons, and sauce verte; smoked mackerel escabèche with frisée, bacon, and fingerlings; seared diver scallop with smoked salmon roe, crème fraîche, and melted “slaw”; duck confit with smoked lentils; and for dessert, roasted sweet-potato pot de crème.

Watch for future special menus on Facebook.
